I had a question about reapplying to MBB / T2 firms in Australia. I am planning to reapply to these firms early next year in the graduate rounds, it would have been 2+ years since my last application to these firms. I understand that there is a strong emphasis on progression for reapplicants so I'm wondering whether I should take the GMAT and hopefully achieve a high score (730+) to put on my resume. I am one year out of undergraduate university and pre-MBA.
Some background info on my progression since my last application:
- I have secured a return offer for the graduate program at one of the B4 strategy arms
- I had 2 part time jobs in financial services (superannuation and accounting firms)
- I became more involved in social impact activities through volunteering regularly at two organisations
I've been told that my progression is not impressive enough and that I should take the GMAT to boost my application - I would be keen to hear your thoughts before I commit to an intensive period of study and exam preparation.
